1)I already posted that I am looking into returning to work. This is based on my health improving to the point that I think working on a part-time basis will be feasible. I have talked to Occupational Health and my union rep, feeling more confident about that. (I should update that thread)
I'm taking abx just 4 days a month now and I'm down to a few symptoms. (M/W/Th/F ) This last cycle I skipped two doses one on Thursday evening and one on Friday morning ..as I felt like things were ramping up...to avoid a bad herx...and it worked. I'm testing this to see if I'll need to avoid working on the days (end of week 1 and beginning of week 2) which I have been herxing too badly to leave the home.
2) My GP called me several months ago asking if she could give my name and phone number to one of her patients who had tested positive for LD. Thank God we have one good Dr. in my small city. This patient also goes to the J clinic. We've been talking over the phone since then. She called me a few days ago saying she wanted to take me out lunch to thank me. Within 3 months of treatment all her pain is gone. Pain she has had for many years. She said if she hadn't talked to me, she wouldn't have gone to DC for treatment...she would have gone to the LLND that I saw for a few years prior (Who is not licensed to prescribe the top antimalarials...but doesn't tell the patients that up front)
As it turns out, she has Babesia...including a very swollen liver that goes along with it. I'm so happy that she has improved so much in a short amount of time. (a few other symptoms are gone, too)
3) A few months ago, I posted here in distress - over a personal matter with my husband. It was up and down for several months...and now I can tell you...things are good....really good. In fact, I think we are now closer than ever....strange the way things work out sometimes.
I'm on a roll.....lol
